Mine is an automatic.  I should try shifting to neutral while in motion.  
But I agree, the sound has to bounce to be heard.  The other guy who 
asked this question got responses like "brake cable touching 
driveshaft".  I guess it could be something serious, like the 
differential.  Any other serious things that could cause this?
